Well established standards for wastewater disposal were considered


On February 17, a session was held with Asian Development Bank /ADB/ Representatives at RA Deputy Minister Khachik Hakobyan. The propositions on the legal framework amendments in water drainage sector as well as common standards for wastewater removal were discussed at the meeting.

As a result of the consultation, an approach was suggested considering the necessity of involving the legal framework amendments in the RA Water code and relevant decrees with the purpose of regulating urban wastewater collection, clean up and removal into the environment. Additionally, the supervision must involve clean up requirements and the schedule defined for the urban areas.
